Steakhouse
The Chop House opened its doors in December 2009, offering a new food concept within a Dublin 4 pub! Our focus is to produce high quality dishes using the best of Irish produce. As the name suggests our main ingredient is Irish Meat, the winner of which is our beef. We source this from 2 farms, 1 in Co. Louth, 1 in Roscommon. You will find it difficult to resist a steak once you have been presented with our now famous “Meat Board”, which showcases cuts such as Ribeye, Fillet, Sirloin, and Porterhouse, along with Lamb and Pork choices. Our menu also includes a variety of excellent fish dishes! Kevin Arundel the Chef/Owner and his head Chef Kevin Gallagher have adapted their skills from Michelin star restaurants, to suit the more relaxed environment in The Chop House.

    Great food but service wasn’t what I thought it would be, a. bit perfunctory, For the price of the food I’d expect a bit more warmth and attentiveness.

    Food & service was excellent but it was punchy in terms of prices, but probably just sign of the times everywhere is so expensive.

    Amazing meal. Excellent service. Delicious specials. The fish board (pictured) was to die for. Octopus cooked perfectly. Lamb is a must. They use hake for their fish and chips which is a nice change. Filet melted in your mouth! We were a group of 5 visiting from out of town and everything about this meal was just perfect.

    This was our first trip back to The Chophouse since the pandemic and it was faultless. From Joe at front of house with his usual friendly welcome, to the setting, the staff and the wonderful food, it was a great experience. The fishboard starter was stunning as was the halibut and ribeye, all 10/10. We rebooked again before we left.

    As we were going to the Bord Gais Theatre, we wanted a nice place to eat. The food here is exceptional & the service warm & efficient. I had noted on the booking that it was our anniversary & we were delighted to be treated to Prosecco on arrival.

    Food was good. Scallops and fish plate starters were delicious. Steaks I found mine good, ribeye, my other half said his strip loin was ok. Wine was lovely and service was very good. Interior was fine but toilets let it down. Needed attention. Toilet seat coming off in one and the toilet roll on the floor and another was stuffed with toilet paper.

    We were a little disappointed with the cote de boeuf. It was very chewy and a lot of fat / sinew. For €95 we expected a lot and were left slightly disappointed. The restaurant is lovely and the staff are very nice but a bit disappointing.

    We visited as family of four and where very happy with the utmost friendly service. The food was very good, also the vegan courses. We are happy to give a big thumbs up! Consider to reserve a table in advance. The restaurant was really full and walk-in customers had to been rejected.
